 Hi  there,
 
 Various  plants  need  different  lighting  needs.  The  30  watts  one  you  have  used  in  your  tank  is  too  low  for  a  planted  tank  (about  0.5  Watts  per  Gallon  (WPG).  You  need  atleast  2  WPG  for  plants  to  thrive  ,provided  all  the  other  requirements.  Give  us  your  tank  details  (like  substrate  used,  ferts  dosage  etc)  and  our  experts  will  be  glad  to  provide  you  info.
 
 You  can  also  do  a  lots  of  research  HERE  and  HERE
 
 
 
 Regards
 Raghu

 Ask  for  PLL  in  any  electrical  shops  &  they  will  have  it.  I  know  some  experts  here  prefer  DIY  set  -up  but  im  not  good  at   it.  For  your  tank  size  you  will  need  atleast  4*36w   PLL.  I  use  one  from  philips  its  approx  INR.  750  each.  (DIY  is  much  cheaper  i  guess)
 
 Cheers,
 Dj

 PLL  is  your  best  option  in  my  opinion  that  is.  i  have  two  DIY  PLL.  one  is  18w  and  the  other  36w.  took  helf  of  what  it  would  cost  as  the  ready  made  ones.  
 
 you  can  look  at  sujo's  DIY  method!
